Italian GP Friday

Italian Grand Prix – Practice

Weather: sunny and dry, 28-31°C air, 30-45°C track

Nico Hülkenberg:
Sauber C32-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari 056)
1st Practice: 18th / 1:27.224 min (16 laps) / 2nd Practice 16th / 1:26.385 min (43 laps)

“It was quite a challenging day. This morning was compromised a bit by a gearbox issue, which we were able to solve before the afternoon session. When doing the long runs I felt more comfortable in the car than with low fuel. We definitely have some room for improvement there. We have to look into the data and analyse what happened, because I think we can be more competitive. Otherwise, as usual, we were learning about the tyres and the set-up.”

Tom McCullough, Head of Track Engineering:
“We split the development items between the two cars today. In FP1 Esteban got further mileage on the passive DRS system that is targeted for races later this year. Unfortunately we lost some time in FP1 for Nico with a gearbox problem, which we were able to fix, so both cars ran reliably in FP2. We evaluated some alternative rear wing levels and concentrated on the long run performance of the tyres at these high track temperatures in preparation for race day. It looks like the mid field is going to be tight. We still have some work to do to get the most out of the car and we’ll start out preparations for qualifying now.”
